Adkins Arboretum
Photo Tour   

Adkins Arboretum explores the environment of an upstream Bay tributary on the Eastern Shore. This 400-acre preserve is located on Tuckahoe Creek and includes portions of one of the region's most significant forested wetlands. Natural areas contain the diversity of various stages of maturing forests and meadows.

At the Arboretum you can celebrate the earliest blooms in spring of spicebush and shadbush, mid-summer's fragrant summer-sweet and fall's paw paw harvest. Adkins Arboretum is dedicated to the protection of the Delmarva Peninsula's natural heritage, the conservation of the region's indigenous flora and the preservation of open space and habitat for wildlife.

Hours: The Visitors Center is open from 10 AM - 4 PM daily (except major holidays);
Fees: $3 for adults, $1 for children ages 6-18 and free for children 5 and under. Arboretum members are free.
